The opening of a six-room inn, which is described as an eco-luxury community, has opened with glowing reviews from its first guests. The Isla Palenque is off to a great start only 10 weeks after its opening. The boutique-size inn is the first part of the eco-luxury community to be completed.
Panama’s economy has experienced double-digit growth for three consecutive years, according to the Wall Street Journal, making it a good area to build a second or a vacation home. The initial residences of the project are to be ready in early 2014.
Infrastructurally, the recently-completed expansion of Enrique Malek Airport in David, is of particular interest to travelers and homeowners at Isla Palenque, as the airport is now positioned to become Panama's second airport to accept international flights; the airport already receives regularly scheduled flights from Costa Rica, and many expect flights from the United States to start in 2014 or 2015.
